Miami Marlins pitcher José Ureña has received a six-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for intentionally hitting Ronald Acuña Jr. of the Atlanta Braves with a pitch in the bottom of the first inning of Wednesday night's game at SunTrust Park in Atlanta. Joe Torre, Chief Baseball Officer for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

Unless appealed, Ureña's suspension is scheduled to begin tomorrow, when the Marlins are to play the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park. If he elects to appeal, then the discipline issued to Ureña will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.

In addition, Braves first base coach Eric Young has received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for his actions during the incident. Young's suspension will be served tonight, when the Braves are scheduled to host the Colorado Rockies.
